Davy Crockett Ditty

January 16, 2014
   I remember back in 1955 when the Davy Crockett theme song was on everyone's lips, someone in Iowa came up with a parody and it started like this: "Born on a table top in Albert Lea. . ." I remember it was quite funny in a Norwegian way, but I can't remember the rest. Anyone know the ditty?

  This is as close as I can come:

“Born on a table top in Albert Lea, rode in a car when he was only three. Davy, Davy Crockett, King of The Wild Party.”
—Old Norsky Ditty
